NKA are incredibly proud of the team and community of Comrie Park Kindergarten in the recent achievement of their Green Gold Enviroschools status. Comrie Park are one of just 13 kindergarten’s in New Zealand to have achieved this significant status. NKA Board Chair Grant Harrison stated “this achievement is significant and reflects hard work and a commitment to the sustainability elements included in NKA’s strategic direction. Learning aligned to environmental value cannot be understated as a new generation of tamariki are growing up more aware of the fragility of their surroundings and how to take care of this.”
